6:02pm
delays as spillane's are still closed but police have not identified either the suspects or the police officer at this time, still waiting for that information. >> we continue team coverage with ken bastida, what can you tell us about the injured officer? >> well, he is still listed in critical condition officially. and his identity is still being withheld so that all of his family can be notified at this point. we want to show you what we shot 25 minutes ago, there were to chp motorcycles escorting to chp patrol cruisers that came into the emergency entrance just a short time ago. it looks like a number of family members were getting out and going in and that has been the pattern all day today. the chp tells us that this particular officer has been with the force for five years and has a big family, and extended family. over 100 law enforcement officers have been coming by, many of them still here tonight
6:03pm
standing by. this has been, as you can imagine, a very emotional and difficult day for the chp and, according to the chp, for the public as well. >> we do appreciate all the calls of concern from the public. the media, and every family and friend that have poured their concern towards us. we thank you very much. it is not just hit us but it hits the public as well, we're there to provide a service to you and it is not just us, it is everyone. i have known him for a short time, and that's the way, his family will be in our prayers and thoughts, we just need to stay focused on that and take care of each other. >> a police officer, all the way for a while but love the areas so much and came back to keep working here. when i asked her if there was anything that the public could do at this point, she said one

word to me " pray ". back to you. >> thanks. let's go back to the shooting scene now where joe vasquez has more information on the suspect's vehicle, that jeep. >> he was talking about how difficult it is for the officers, praying for their colleague, it was difficult as well because a lot of them had to participate in an investigation that shut down a highway for most of the day. the investigation took them to the far reaches of the east bay. let me show you video, one major focus was the jeep, in fact we found the address of the jeep, and belong to a day point address and i spoke to a man that turned out to be the previous owner of the jeep, the last owner of the jeep on public record and he told me that his cheek was towed a week and half ago and he could not afford the towing fees of the towing company kept it, investigators have not release any information on the driver of that jeep that was shot by police and also in a

6:06pm
relation. she is completely cleared and not a suspect. and now the focus is back on the man that was shot by a police officer. >> a quick question, kristin pointed out that the first officer, the officer that was shot and wounded, his patrol car was in front of that jeep which is not standard operating procedure. anyone at the scene able to shed any light on that for us? >> we spoke to a police expert, it is not standard operating procedure. usually the police car is behind the suspects' vehicle people we're told by the experts that it does happen sometimes, given the traffic flow patterns and what have you, the officer might stop in front of the car. you know, the bottom line tonight, reporters asked why a was the situation, because it is so weird to see the car in front of a car that is stopped and it would not go there, they're not talking about that right now. suffice to say that it is not unheard of, just not the usual pattern. >> checking back on the traffic

6:32pm
earlier tonight we had all the women from congress on stage, a number of female speakers throughout the night hoping to convince more women to support her husband, as well as all voters. but i really think that is what her principal mission will be, to build on that gender gap. >> we will be watching, thank you. a fall on a story that we brought you yesterday, after a controversial comment at the convention, the chair of california's democratic party is coming home, party leaders say that john burton has left the convention and return to california for a " long scheduled root canal ". that is the official line, he made headlines on monday by comparing republicans to the third reich propaganda leader. he apologized in an exclusive cbs interview later. we will be following all of the events of the democratic national convention, through thursday when the president accepts his nomination. for updates follow us cbssf.com.

6:34pm
sometimes seems that way. >> the first time that i meet and sow's to have 31 students in my composition class, so that we have time to grade papers into all of that work but generally there are at least 50 trying to get into the room. >> 100,000 students makes this the largest college campus in the country, the college of last resort for those that can make it this far, it is in real money trouble. >> we're talking about half an hour too great a paper, it is not that we can just cram more students into the room and hope to get the kind of quality education want to give them. >> supporters of a ballot measure to raise $195 million for city college, proposition 8, open their campaign today, it is a tax on property, home owners, this is not the only tax increase that they have been asked to approve, there's one on the state level, a couple on the state level, one would raise taxes on those making more than a quarter of a million dollars and a sales tax on california
6:35pm
good stuff. is this a good time to be asking people for a tax increase? >> this is a very bad time. >> she is a republican in the state senate and says that city college has been accused of massive mismanagement of funds over the past several years, so to give more money seems pointless and only charging property owners? >> it only targets one-third of the voters that are actually property owners in the city and does not cost anything to the majority of voters. >> it would average $79 per year for a home owning household in the city. >> $79 per year is about $8 per month, 2 c. of coffee. >> he says it is not that much. mike sugerman, cbs 5. >> ahead, why taxpayers are paying for a convicted killers sex change? ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
